the perception of momentum for romney, it changed the subject. it focused the dynamic on president obama being able to be bipartisan and it put governor romney out of play because he wasn't in the position to do anything official. and so at least from the perception standpoint they do feel as if things are turning more in their favor in the final days. >> woodruff: jonathan, what are you picking up about the storm and the impact of it happening? the impact that it happened at all and the role that the president has played in the storm and the aftermath on the campaign? >> i think the major impact is it really suspended the campaign for effectively 48 hours. there was no campaign. and really still now two days later much of the news coverage is devoted to the storm. so i think that has hurt governor romney who has tried to really drive an aggressive message against president obama. he for two days couldn't do that at all and that has not been helpful to him. again, any time a president has the opportunity to show himself as above politics, as being a commander-in-chief, the public service eleme
and romney were tied according to many polls. obama people claim he had a lead in ohio. changed the dynamic on the ground. >> we now have a rasmussen poll, the first, i believe, of any of them to show romney ahead. the other sho they are tied. it's ted heat of a state romney had in his pocket a month ago. >> if you freeze race -- >> you freeze it to some extent. you leave five days instead of eight days. i'm not sure it's decisive. the polls tell us absent the hurricane, romney is a slow and steady tortoise in the race. be passing obama. he probably still does. look at the national poll. you cannot, if gallup is anywhere near right. gallup has him up six. say he is up three. you can't win national election by three points and lose in the electoral college. this is uncon zeable. if you win in popular vote you lose electoral in the year 2000 the margin is fraction of fraction of fraction of 1% of one state if florida. the national polls they are disconnected, you can't have a disconnect that large between the national and electoral college. >> i find ohio numbers hard to believe. if it is tig
who the romneys were and it hasn't changed. there have been some flexes and movements in the numbers but we go into electoral advantage there and demographic advantage in some ways but the race is close. >> you know, it's funny. we're all -- there's sort of two schools of thoughts here. you have the data folks and you have the gut folks and you say, this feels like it could break and if it breaks it breaks in one direction. but we haven't had a break since 1980. >> right. >> it's sort of a reminder, we thought, it could break and if it breaks, kerry wins. obama was polling the same way the whole time. in 2000 there was this assumption that it was going to break for bush and it never did. >> for those of us who work long hours, sometimes it's hard to remember, it's exciting. it's an exciting time, right? it could go either way. i think what you're seeing is part of the reason that it's not. we always talk about a break and then don't end up seeing onenessly. it's all about turnout now. it's all about getting voters to the polls. so who has momentum and who doesn't, it's a momentum gam
obama and romney make change a key issue on stump. nbc's chuck todd joins us now. chuck, good morning to you. >> reporter: the polls close in ohio in 108 hours and between now at 7:30 p.m. tuesday night when the polls close, i don't know if an hour is going to go by without one of the two candidates for president or two candidates for vice president trekking through at least one town somewhere in the buckeye state. >> i'm counting on you to make sure we will win. we can't lose. let's go vote! let's get this done. >> reporter: and the final chapter of the 2012 campaign has begun, and it's all come down to ohio which president obama and mitt romney will visit six separate times during the last days of this race. today president obama will spend the entire day in ohio but a look at the rest of his campaign schedule makes the buckeye state look like an airline hub for air force one with ohio stops every day through election day. for his part, mitt romney is not only focusing on ohio but hoping to win over wisconsin and looking to broaden the battleground map campaigning in pennsylvania on
is the last time you met with the president? cantor said it was a year ago. romney said i will not do that. i will meet often with the democrats and create the type of bipartisan agreements that move the country forward. he is making the argument that it's time for big change. borrowed rhetoric from the 2008 obama campaign that he says the president hasn't stuck to. he will wrap up the third event in virginia beach, virginia today. fully ten more battleground states that he plans to visit between now and tuesday night. he will wrap it up with a big speech in new hampshire, where he has a vacation home. that is his manchester, new hampshire, monday night event. the final campaign stop before the polls open on tuesday. romney is in a dead even tie across the country in the national poll. in the battleground state polls though president obama stayed within the margin of error, he is at the high end of it. some congress certain in romney campaign that ohio will be a big struggle. they have to make the ground game work. and the last 72-hour push. to that end, a pew research poll, very, have intere
that he wants to finish the change he talked about in the last four years. he did go negative on romney. not giving it up. he said romney claiming to be an agent of change and he knocked millions of people off the health insurance. he would go backward on wall street reform. obama landed in nevada now. he has three stops in wisconsin. six in ohio. they thought they'd have the state locked up but they don't. six stops in ohio tells us while he has a lead, they are nervous about that. he will hit it six times. he is rolling out big celebrities. eva longoria in nevada. sheila e. she was banging on the drums. we're told on monday he will be in battleground states with jay-z and bruce springstein. you talked about david axelrod saying that are not going to lose michigan and not losing minnesota, not losing pennsylvania. if they do, he will shave off his mustache. new information on the shaving front. today, jay carney showed up to work on air force one without shaving says he is not going to shave between now and election day. superstition. he thinks it will help the president win re-electio
, swing through florida, got to change planes in ohio. mitt romney not only focused on ohio but is trying to broaden the battleground map. what is he up to here with this decision to campaign in pennsylvania on sunday? he's also got new hampshire on his list twice not once. the smallest swing state. they think it is edging their direction but more importantly for their math the 270 they don't get there with florida, virginia, ohio. they get there with florida, virginia, ohio, and one small state in this case new hampshire. meanwhile vice president joe biden makes two stops in wisconsin. congressman paul ryan begins his day in colorado before flying back to the midwest for a rally in cedar falls, iowa. then he joins romney in westchester in ohio tonight. then there's former president bill clinton for the fifth player in all of this if you will and look at his schedule today in florida. he goes to lake worth, then ft. myers, then st. petersburg, then tallahassee. he's got five events in total today in florida. and you know the way he talks. talk about a hoarse voice by the end of the day it
for the last four years. and he is offering them up as change. >> romney sayshitting battleground states as well today he is continuing to hammer the president on the economy and said that obama hasn't managed to turn things around over the last four years and romney says it's time to give someone with economic experience a shot at running things. attacking me does not make an agenda it doesn't get people back to work. we don't need a secretary of business to understand business we need a president who understands business and i do. he went on to say he knows the president's supporters are chanting for more years in t. has a new chance, five more days. the highest ranking penn state official to be charged in what the state attorney general says was a conspiracy of silence covering up the sex abuse in the rape from the former football coach gerry sandusky to other officials into the former athletic director gary schulz also reviewed those charges today. three powerful and influential men who helped position at the very top of one of the most prestigious universities in the nation three m
and president romney will change it because he knows what to do and president obama didn't have the chance to do it. >> i want to stay on this issue of the auto bailout. the headline mitt romney proposed for that op-ed that you see below us, it's been below us now for several minutes. he had suggested the way forward for the auto industry. should he have tried to correct president obama and say i didn't ask? would that have helped him if he was more aggressive in saying i never said that and here's the proof? >> i thought mitt romney did what he had to do in the debate. he looked presidential. didn't sound petty. he wasn't interrupting in a rude way, so i thought he did well in the debate. he demonstrated that he had the the meddle to be president of the united states. and he also knows how to negotiate and to bring something to reality. president obama has not been a good negotiator. he has not been able to even get the democrats in congress on his side on a lot of these issues and a president romney knows how to work the political process so that government can actually work. >> i think govern
heading toward the east coast, both campaigns have been forced to change their travel schedules. romney scrapped a trip to virginia and instead he'll head to ohio. the president planned to head to florida but pushed his trip to sunday night to beat the storm. >>> the california ballot features proposition 30 and proposition 38. today, state democrats held a day of action calling voters and urging them to support proposition 30, governor jerry brown's plan. lisa showed us it needs all the help it can get. >> reporter: just ten days until election day, and support for proposition 30 is plunging. only 46% now support it, a 9% drop over the past month. 42% are against it. the governor has been traveling throughout the state, fighting for this ballot measure. >> may i speak to you? >> reporter: they called other registered democrats, asking them to vote yes. prop 30 would raise income taxes on the wealthy and hike the sales tax by a quarter%. >> if proposition 30 does not pass it will have a devastating effect on education in california. >> reporter: one of the largest supporters, the califo
that romney represents change and an appeal as well to the middle class. how effective is that closing argument? >> well, basically he's arguing don't go backwards we want to go forward. that's the theme of his campaign. but we're hearing something also interesting in these closing arguments. both sides are claiming they can deliver unity. that's something that got president obama elected. remember when he first gave a speech in 2004 at the democratic convention he said there's no liberal america, there's no conservative america, there's the united states of america. he's going back to that argument and the terrible storm sandy the hurricane actually helped him make that argument because he got praise from two republican governors of new jersey and virginia for his efficient handling of the relief effort after that storm. so it's helping him make the case that he can bring the country together even though most his critics say he failed to do that. >> that's interesting. here's the thing. even if the president is re-elected, it's not as if the house is going to change dramatically in te
the country forward into a new era of prosperity and growth. romney spoke today and yes romney did dust off the same five-point economic plan he has been touting for months. the only thing remotely fresh that romney offered was more cries for change wrapped in a series of unrelenting attacks on president obama who apparently bears sole responsibility for everything that has gone wrong in washington the fast four years. >> this is a year of a choice. americans want to see changes. four years ago people voted for a partisan president and washington is in gridlock because of it president obama reminds us that he inherited a terrible economy. it's not what he inherited but with the misguided policies that slowed the recovery and caused millions of americans to endure lengthy poverty. >> eliot: with change in the latest theme for the drive to the white house smith fired back saying, the only ching romney is offering is to take us back to the same failed policies that crashed our economy in the first place. president obama made a similar observation a little more colorfully when he said, kids hav
that is not soh that the things one learns about what people say are completely irrelevant. governor romney has chang his position on just about everything throughout his entire career. and that, i believe, bedevils the fact checkers who hall say, "well, his official position is this, but then he did that.wh so it's hard to know, but you can't really say, this is true because also that's true." if that's the context, if that's what's going on, then i'm not sure what can be learned at all about governor romney because the ances of him saying something different, doing something different once the election comes, based on his behavior during this campaign and while he's been running anr president, are extremely high. >> let me give you an example o what people have learned. people know that governor romney is going to increase spending for the military. and that's a consequential difference. they know that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected presint. that's an important issue distinctiont coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey
. what they're seeing is governor romney has a plan to change things, turn things around. big changes needed right now in washington that people think is broken. and president obama who has glossy new brochure, when you look inside it is more of the same. bill: when you think about what the obama team did in 2008, i mean do you have to, do you have to go well beyond the numbers of 2004? and because when you talk about these voters who voted for the president four years ago and they have been disillusioned and perhaps not supporting him now, can you point to examples or concrete evidence where the obama supporters of 2008 have left him now? >> i can and it's the early voting numbers that are coming in. looks like we are overperforming in all the early voting and democrats are underperforming as compared to 2008. and we expected early voting to go more towards democrats because that is what happened in 2008. democrats like to vote early. republicans like to vote on election day. despite that we've been able to increase our numbers significantly and their numbers are down. so i think the
the global climate change and mitt romney's policies on a bat. we will hear from governor romney. he took a campaign event and made it into an egg acknowledgement of the storm and the victims. james in texas. an independent. caller: good morning. host: caller: good morning i am nearly 70 years old. i saw winterset were colder than normal. warmerwinters that were norma than normal. and i can remember in texas when, i have seen icicles 4 feet long hanging from the rafters and other times where it barely got cold. the earth has a cycle of warming and cooling cycles. one of the problems with sandy to me, they talk about the infrastructure being over, and the subway damage, the worst in 100 years. one of the reasons i think it is aging is because we are paying out so much in pensions and stuff to the union workers like feiu but we cannot afford any other -- money for the infrastructure. how banks that is the topic for the new york times front page. warnings said it could happen here. for nearly 1 decade, scientists have said to new yorkers but it faces certain apparel, rising sea levels, more
is an agent for change. governor romney using his talents as a saililsalesman to up the policies that we have been cleaning up after after these last four years. my opponent can talk about change but i know what change looks like because i fought for it. because i have the scars to prove it. >> michael bloomberg did not endorse a presidential candidate in 2008. today he endorsed president in and writes the devastation that hurricane sandy brought the stakes of tuesday's election to sharp relief. i want our president to play scientific evidence above electoral politics. mitt romney will campaign and during the 2008 campaign senator john mccain made a late play for pennsylvania campaigning there sunday before election day and went onto lose the state by over ten points. new nbc polls shows president obama over mitt romney. in wisconsin, president obama polled at 49% with mitt romney at 46%. in new hampshire president obama polled at 49%, mitt romney at 47% and detroit press poll and cnn poll showed in colorado president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 48%. tonight president obama has an 81% cha
. in the wake of a superstorm, climate change. and five days until election day. listen to what mitt romney said in virginia beach earlier. >> would you want four more years where -- i think it will be helpful to have a president who actually understands job creation. >> our cnn orc poll shows obama at 50 and romney at 48. we begin with one of the hardest hit areas from hurricane sandy, staten island where the death toll continues to rise. with me now is the assemblywoman of new york nicole malliotakis and another resident of staten island, anthony, who rescued his brother from the storm. welcome to you both. >> thank you very much. >> let me start with you, if i may, assemblywoman. this is what the staten island president james molinaro said about the red cross response. he said it's an absolute disgrace. he said he was so infuriated and outraged by the lack of help that you've been receiving. do you endorse what he said? >> well, i think it was a sentiment of frustration this morning because we hadn't had seen a real response here in staten island but we had our senators out here today and i c
a change for romney, ali? >> well, he does it by approximating to some degree. he does it by saying this state has prospered under a republican governor. look, this is a state that is split. it's a virtual dead heat. obama's got a bit of a lead, but as you know it's within that statistical margin of error so it could be a few points off one way or the other. it will come down to who comes out to vote. the last few days will be about encouraging those who have already decided. there's very little left in terms of evidence as to what you could do to possibly tell people i'm your guy. the question is you are sort of leaning towards me. do i go out and do it. mitt romney has made some errors in the last week or so in ohio, particularly with this issue of jeep and chrysler, getting money in the auto bailout and supposedly transferring manufacturing, having intention to transfer manufacturing to china. that is not playing well in ohio. >> let's talk about how the polls are playing in ohio. it's not possible to overstate the importance of ohio in determining who is going to win tuesday. no

to break back again. >> how is the president going change the numbers. a lot of polls have romney up a point. >> it does not matter. those are weighted on who is likely to vote. there's some questions on that. the polls that matter is ohio, florida and virginia and, you know, even wisconsin and iowa as well. those are the ones that if obama can hold the midwest and that's what he is trying to hold. if he can hold that there's no way romney can win. >> it looks like romney will take ohio, florida and virginia. >> that's a dream. >> if he does that and he takes colorado too and iowa, all of those things are likely, i think that romney is going to win the election. romney only needs 269 to win. in one of those and it could happen, if you get a 269 it goes to the house and they line up state by state and they win because of all the states. one small point romney only needs 269 to get over the finish line. i think that he is going to get there. >> i think that's your wish there. >> thank you guys are coming in. >>> coming up the devastation hits one of the colleagues hard. the affects tha
